Samsung has said it is aiming to take foldable smartphones "mainstream" with the launch of its Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Fold 3.

Typically costing more than £1,000, foldable smartphones have remained a niche product, despite initial hype, BBC reported.

Samsung said it had lowered the cost and improved durability to appeal to the average user.

But one analyst said the new phones failed to offer "a truly compelling solution to the mass market".

Ben Wood, from the CCS Insight consultancy, said it was notable some features from Samsung's high-end Galaxy Note series - such as the Note's trademark stylus - were coming to the Fold 3.
